Our Country

Spain is a large country in the south of Europe, only 21Km (13 miles) away from Africa across the Straits of Gibraltar. It is a lovely country to live in; generally and overall the climate is warm and the people friendly. Spain is known for its traditional (though controversial) bullfighting, flamenco music & dancing, and famous Spanish dishes like paella. Spanish is the 2nd most spoken language in the world. Ole!

Our Town

Sotogrande is on the Mediterranean coast of Andalucía, a region in the south of Spain. It has nice beaches, a marina (Puerto Sotogrande) with shops, bars & restaurants, several hotels, one church and lots and lots and lots of houses. Although it is only a small place, Sotogrande is well known for sports like golf, polo, padel and tennis. It’s an amazing place!

Our School

Sotogrande International School (SIS) is approximately 5Km inland and is the only international school in Sotogrande. It has about 650 students, aged from 3 -18, and almost 100 staff. There are different buildings for the different age groups and a main building, gym and sports pitch which we all share. There is always something happening – educational trips & visits, sports competitions, music & theatre performances and whole school focussed events like Global Challenge Week. SIS is a friendly, caring place with lots of fun activities and we think it is one of the best schools in Europe.

Our  Class

Our year group M1 is the first year of secondary school and we are all between the ages of 10 and 12. There are 42 of us in total, split into two classes. Our main classrooms (homerooms) are in “Timber Building” and yes, it is made of wood! We are a very friendly and welcoming year group and we have a lot of fun together, and also with our teachers, especially Mr. Wicks, Mr. Hodin & Ms. Maes. Many of us come from different countries and speak different languages; however in school we all use English, except during Spanish class!

A woman's husband dies. She is lonely, so she goes to the pet shop and says to the shopkeeper "Can I have a pet, any pet?" The shopkeeper replies "All we have left is this parrot" "It’s ok, I’ll have that!" says the woman. The shopkeeper brings her the parrot and he squawks at her "Eww, get away from me, you old witch!" "Its ok, I’ll still have him" says the woman. So she takes him home and hangs him up in his cage and he says to her "Oh, I have to live with you, you smelly old cow!"  And the woman says "Hey, any more lip from you and you'll go in the fridge!" "I don’t care, better than looking at that ugly face!" The woman takes him out the cage and puts him into the fridge. Ten minutes later she takes him out; he's all shivering and cold. She tells him not to say anything again. The parrot says "Ok, Ok I won't.... just one thing, what did the chicken say?"

The teacher distributing test results:
Luis, ten.
Pedro, eight.
Juan, six.
Jaime, a zero.
Jaime says "Why give me a zero?"
Because you have copied Pedro's paper. How do I know? Because your answers to the first four questions were exactly the same, and in the last question Pedro answered: "I don’t know" and you wrote: "Me neither ".
